Yes I would agree with you that t-stat may be gone but have you recently put new batteries in your t-stat. If you have then you can get a new stat from hvac dealer or check with your local hardware stores. I believe that is a honeywell number so should not be hard to find replacement. When you change it just make sure you get wires back on proper terminals. Thank you and have a good new year.

No it cant really be fitted as the evap system uses much larger duct and also in some cases people use a different type of duct that when running a gas heater threw it it tends to melt with the heat. Your best option would be to get new ducting that way you can size it correctly so you dont have air alance issues down the track.

I have a vulcan compact 60 sn# 1744 cat# 38-05 aw 166 the problem is the gas burner shuts down periodically about every 4-5 min, leaving the fan still running for a further 3-4 min, blowing out...


Hi Dave, my neighbour has a Vulcan Compact 60 that is doing the same as yours, except the cycle time is even shorter, only four minutes total. The temperature in the house barely rises and never reaches the thermostat setting. Altering the thermostat anticipator does not alter the cycle time. Therefore, as you have found, the fault is not related to the thermostat. The gas technician who inspected the heater said he could see the unit was faulting, but didn't think he could fix it. WTH? To help my friendly neighbour, I have asked numerous experienced techs since and those few who actually seem to know anything have helped me piece together what is probably (I emphasise probably) happening. Current thinking is that the fan is not blowing enough air and the heat exchanger is overheating, which trips the over temp switch (limiter), cutting off the burner. Eventually the fan cools the unit down enough to switch itself off and reset the limiter, then the cycle repeats.
The remedy is to replace the fan or replace the fan bearings, if they have become tight, as is likely the case. It might also be necessary to replace the combination fan/limiter switch, because the contacts are probably arcing due to the extra current drain of the fan with tight bearings (I know this because the arcing causes TV and radio interference to myself and others in the vicinity, which interference ceases when the heater is turned off and resumes when the heater is turned on and had about 20 minutes to heat up). Important: If no action is taken, the heat exchanger can be damaged and/or cracked, especially if the limiter contacts weld closed, which will allow the heater to exceed the limit temperature and probably crack the heat exchanger. This in turn will allow carbon monoxide fumes to enter the house via the ducts. Therefore the problem should be fixed ASAP.
I am currently trying to find someone who understands this heater to the extent described above and therefore has some chance of repairing it correctly. No success as yet, similar to your own experience.
Dave, if you discover anything at all about this fault, please let me know, as I am not going to waste my money on gas techs who are unable to fix the problem because they don't understand the system to the required degree.
Parts can be obtained from many gas supply houses. The one I normally use quoted about $300 for a fan and $150 for a fan/limit switch. This seems too expensive to me. I could get a whole second-hand unit for about $300. Will try to let you know if I make any further discoveries. Anyway, best of luck. Regards, VC60.

Forced Hot Air Heating system doesn't maintain thermostat setting


It sounds like you may have issues with the furnace. A qualified professional can go over the system and the house to let you know if the system and unit are properly sized. The poor performance of a furnace can be a sign of carbon buildup in the furnace.
Good luck, hope this helps.

did you mark which terminals you removed the wires from on the old stat? If not you will need to look on the furnace and see what letters they are connected to .. then connect to the same on the thermostat.
